Bernardini is a young horse we are so proud of and he is proving to be truly world-class. Our other top stallions Elusive Quality, Medaglia d’Oro and Street Cry will be joined by Australia’s reigning Champion sire, Lonhro who has been so well received since we announced him just last month.”
“We can’t wait to show him to breeders in January. Of our four freshmen who have started so well, Hard Spun deserves special mention. He’s leading the table by Stakes winners and we look forward to all of their three-year-olds in 2012.‚Äù
Sam Bullard, Darley‚Äôs director of stallions in Europe said, ‚ÄúWe have a wonderful line up of stallions and their achievements this year have been outstanding. Our elite stallions Dubawi, Shamardal and Cape Cross continue to sire G1 winners each and every year.
